School Uniform


All students are expected to wear school uniform.  Our aim is that every student develops a sense of pride in themselves in relation to their appearance and as members of the school and community.

We do ask that parents support and co-operate with us in this matter by sending their children to school in the correct uniform.  It is also beneficial if items of school uniform are marked with the students name so that lost or mislaid items are quickly returned to their owner.

For the Academic Year 2019/20 it is compulsory for all year groups (optional for Year 11) to wear the JHS PE kit.

For full details of all school uniform requirements please refer to the downloads on the right-hand side and also to the requirements below.
